Would like my money back

:
I purchased this app, based on several ratings and that it look real cute for my special education students to use. I was excited until I tried it on my students' new iPod Touches (all 10) and on every single one within 15 seconds it would quit. I tried several times. I downloaded again and re-synced each iPod Touch and still had the same problem. I have not any problem with the 50+ apps my students use.

Stick with the free app

:
The free app is a pretty nice app, so I downloaded the full version. The full version crashes shortly after the app launches. I tried to contact support, no response. I would save the headache and stick with the free app...

App crashes

:
This app worked great for a while, but the past few weeks it crashes every time I open it. My kids and I are very disappointed.
